Hydrosols are a perfect addition to your daily skincare regimen. They are gentle enough to be used undiluted on the skin and have a variety of therapeutic benefits in skincare.
So, what exactly are hydrosols? Also known as floral waters, they are the aromatic water that remains after steam distilling plants.
Here are a few of my favorites…
- Frankincense Hydrosol – Perfect for mature skin, it is anti-aging and helps improve skin texture.
- Rose Otto Hydrosol – My favorite! It balances the skins PH making it great for both oily and dry skin. It also has a beautiful scent, which doesn’t hurt.
- Lavender Hydrosol – Soothing, helps reduce redness and inflammation. One of my most favorite uses for Lavender hydrosol is after a day at the beach. It cools and calms sun irritated skin. Keep a bottle in the refrigerator for maximum cooling benefits!
The best part about hydrosols is that they are not just for skincare. Spray Lavender hydrosol on your pillow, at night before bed, for a good nights sleep. Spray Frankincense hydrosol in the air before meditation, or on your yoga mat before practice, to quiet your mind and help you focus. Spray Rose Otto hydrosol around your home or office and enjoy the beautiful aroma. It creates a peaceful and joyful environment. You can’t do that with a regular old facial toner can you?
